Default Anyone use Online Vacation Center?

Are they legit? We use another online agency-but this agency has some unbelievable deals-I am afraid they are a fraud-I wonder if anyone has any experience with them?

Not heard of them, but ask the basic questions that you have of the other agency you worked with in the past i.e. cancellation policies/costs, rate reduction policies, service charges, CLIA, ASTA membership #'s, etc.....

Of course we would ask for a break down of charges. I just want to make sure they had a good rep and am not one of these fly by night agencies. I have heard of too many people being scammed by such.

We normally use cruise.com and found they are good and reputable and have always made good any complaint we had. the problem is-on the particular cruise we have interest-they are sold out in the lower categories. we would have to book an expensive suite. Online Vacation Center still had a few oceanviews left.

Sorry you were unable to take advantage of their offer during your research of the business. Sometimes things happen for a reason !

I wanted to time to decide if I wanted to do that cruise anyway. It was MSC and I was not sure I would like that line.

I went to the MSC board looking for info. I posted on a thread about smoking only down 3 lines on page one. I corrected someone on smoking policies only to discover they were correct at the time. The thread was from 2007-! That board does not get any traffic for sure.

That just reinforced my hesitation! ! whether that is a legit agency or not-maybe there was a negative reason for the cruise being so cheap.
